COVID-19 has created learning loss across multiple dimensions. Individual students will experience learning 'melt', entire generations may learn less than their predecessors, and some students will never return to formal education. The UK's Education Endowment Foundation predicts that COVID-19 school closures will result in the loss of ten years progress in narrowing the achievement gap. And in the US, it's estimated that the cost to remediate the loss of one-third of the school year will be upwards of $100B. In this session, we talk to leaders who are working to mitigate and reverse this learning loss through the innovative use of technology.
